About Me

Ruben Brosbe has been working in NYC public schools since 2007. He entered NYC schools as a Cohort 14 Teaching Fellow. In 2011 left New York City to pursue a master's in Education Policy and Management at the Harvard Graduate School of Education as a member of the Urban Scholars cohort. After graduating he returned to New York City. He spent a year as the Campus Director for Citizen Schools at MS 331 The School for Young Leaders in the Bronx. Afterward he returned to the classroom at PS 368 The Hamilton Heights School. Since 2016, Brosbe has served as a teacher leader at PS 194 The Countee Cullen School, a Renewal School in Central Harlem.

As an educator, Brosbe is passionate about culturally relevant, project-based learning. One of his favorite units of study was a 3rd grade writing unit responding to the lack of racial diversity in Scholastic's Book Club catalogs. Brosbe's commitment to racially equitable schooling led him to join Border Crossers as a trainer in 2016. He has presented on anti-bias elementary education at the New York Collective of Radical Educators annual conference in 2015 and 2018. He is also a founding member of #TeachResistance, an online professional learning community of elementary educators.

Since 2016, Brosbe has also been hosting Teachable Moments, a live storytelling event featuring true classroom stories from current and former educators. Each event addresses a different theme such as "Beginnings," "Accidents Happen," and "Black Lives Matter."

Brosbe has been writing about his personal experiences in the classroom and broader education policy issues since 2007. His writing has been featured in The Washington Post, Chalkbeat, and Bright.
